Send

Serving In Mission has been sending pioneering mission workers for 125 years but there is still much to be done.

Our core conviction is that no-one should live and die without hearing the good news of Jesus Christ and we long to make disciples for him.

This programme is for those committed to longer-term service as SIM Members. We’ll spend time with you building a relationship and sensing together, in partnership with your church, where God is calling you to do ministry overseas in places where Jesus is least known.

We have workers in more than 70 countries worldwide, serving in a huge array of ministries, but all united by that central goal. We have both the experience and the opportunities to make God’s call to mission become a reality for you.

We offer great support for all our workers, helping guide you through the process from first enquiry to placement overseas to an end-of-assignment debrief. You’ll work closely with one of our regional mobilisers, who are themselves experienced mission workers. They will work with your church as well, to ensure there is a real parternship in sending you.

We will help you find a placement which matches your gifts and gives you the opportunity to share the gospel. You will become part of a multi-cultural, multi-skilled team of gospel workers. We handle your finances, organise flights, visas, medical insurance and much more besides; we will give you advice to help you raise prayer and financial support. We will provide training on week-long orientation course in the UK before you go, ensure you are fit and healthy before you leave. Throughout, we will pray with you and for you.

We call this programme Send, because that is exactly what it does – it will send you into mission in partnership with your home church. We know this is a big decision for anyone but Send is designed to make it as straightforward as possible.

To find out more just fill out our enquiry form and one of our mobilisers will be in touch.
